How I Actually Started Making Money From Blogging

Blogging is often pitched to people as a get-rich-quick type of business. Just find your niche, set up a WordPress blog, and before you know you’ll be sailing the world, or surfing the web on the beach, or traveling to exotic locations! 

How To Make Money Blogging

First, I’m going to share a few paths to monetization: the six ways you can make extra money from home by running your blog the right way. 

1. Display Ads Can Help Pay Your Hosting Bills

Display ads are exactly what they sound like: the small ads that show up on a website either at the top or bottom of the page as banner ads, off to the side, or within the content. Most new bloggers start by using Google Adsense for their display ad needs. 

2. Affiliate Marketing

“Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. You find a product you like, promote it to others, and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make.” 

Creating an online course takes a lot of upfront work and effort, but once it’s created and set up, it can be a great form of passive income.  

3. Online Courses And Webinars

One strategy for making money online is to take some of your most epic content and create a digital product or ebook out of it. And, of course, get paid for it. 

4. Ebooks And Products

A sponsored post is an article or blog post you write in partnership with another brand or company. This can be a review, testimonial, or a how-to article.  

5. Sponsored Posts

Last, my least favorite way to make money online through your blog: freelancing. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of this type of work because when you are a freelancer, you are trading hours for dollars.

6. Consulting And Freelance Work
